Case study: automotive industry — automatic labelling of vehicles

‘Various assembly applications from the automotive industry — automatic labelling of vehicles’
At the BMW plant in Regensburg, Germany, 860 BMW 3 Series cars are assembled per day and placed in intermediate storage in a high-bay warehouse. Until recently it was necessary to manually identify each vehicle and attach assembly orders to it before storage. In order to optimise the application of these labels to the painted bodies with regard to quality and cost-effectiveness, BMW was seeking an automated solution. It was in this context that two systems for automated vehicle labelling were created, in which Kuka KR 125 robots stick labels with great sensitivity to painted, and thus delicate, car bodies.

LUZI, a producer of fragrance compositions, decided to start using a robotic cell with a KUKA KR 125 robot and an integrated automatic filling system installed.
The main requirements of the KUKA robots concerned the stack height and the necessary intelligent handling.
Ligmatech recently received an order for an automatic palletising and sorting system for door frames. The KUKA KR 180 PA robot is being used to ensure short cycle times.
A KR 6 six-axis jointed-arm robot from KUKA has met all of SBH’s requirements thanks to its integrated touch and through-the-arc sensors, among other features.
The KUKA.CNC control option enables KUKA robots to be programmed and operated directly by means of G-code.
